Spicy Glazed Chicken Wings

Spicy Glazed Chicken Wings

Unfortunately our favorite football team lost this past week. Yep, we are a Green Bay Packers family. So when it comes to game day, I typically make things like a batch of chili, nachos, or other finger foods. This particular weekend, I was browsing through […]

I will be up front with you… I’m a sucker for chicken wings. They are probably one of my favorite finger foods, and as I do not make them on a regular basis, we do tend to go out for them at one of our […]

Old Bay Chicken Wings

Old Bay Chicken Wings

It’s finally football season, and with that said there is always a discussion on Saturday afternoon, if not sooner, as to what we are going to eat while watching the football game(s).  Default items are always things like chili, or nachos, but if I event mention chicken wings around my oldest son, well I have to make them. As much as a picky eater as he is, I’ve always been surprised that he likes chicken wings, you know because he eats the chicken down to the bone. But I’m also extremely happy as he is going out and trying new things.  If you have been following me for some time, you know that I go out and experiment with an array of chicken wings.  My oldest is not a sauced wing kind of kid,  so I have been tinkering with dried spices. We all devoured my recent creation of the baked garlic and parmesan chicken wings, so I figured I would go out on a limb and try making old bay chicken wings.  They were a total hit.

Old Bay Chicken Wings

Let’s get started.

  • 2 lbs of chicken wings, drumette and wing separated
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp Old Bay seasoning
  • celery sticks, optional

I like to keep the wing tips in tact when cutting the chicken wings, but you do whatever you feel is best.

Place the wings in a sealable bag and add the soy sauce and garlic powder. Seal the bag, and move the wings around to get the wet and dry ingredients incorporated. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for a couple of hours.

When you are ready to make the wings, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. You can fry these in oil if you desire. I have been into baking them lately, but you do what you want to do.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the wings. Bake for about 1 hour, or until they are golden and crispy. I like my wings a bit on the dry side, over cooked if you will, but you cook them to your desired doneness.

How to make Old Bay Chicken Wings

Once cooked, add them to a large mixing bowl.

Pour on the melted butter, then add the Old Bay seasoning and give it a good toss, making sure the wings are nicely coated with the seasoning.

Dig in.

These are divine. If you have never had Old Bay seasoning, it’s a must try. I typically use the seasoning on shrimp or crab boils, but it works really well with these chicken wings.  Hope you enjoy!

Al Pastor Chicken Wings

Al Pastor Chicken Wings

If you have been following my blog for any time now you probably know that I love Mexican food. Who doesn’t right? You probably also know that I try and get  out to eat at least once a week for work, and I typically go to my nearest Mexican restaurant, El Rey. When I have time, I also do a bit of quick shopping and this past week I cruised through the spice aisle to find Al Pastor seasoning. I’m a huge fan of tacos al pastor. They are my go to tacos wherever I go, so I wasn’t going to pass up this spice blend. Now what was I going to make with it was the big question. This is where my love of chicken wings came into play as well. I wasn’t making these so much for myself as I was for making them for my oldest son who loves chicken wings. As he usually eats them plain, yes I said plain, I wanted to put him through the test and see how he would enjoy them with the al pastor seasoning. Well, I was interested as well.

Al Pastor Chicken Wings

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb chicken wings
  • 3 tbsp al pastor seasoning
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Mexican crema, optional

That’s it. Very simple ingredients that make some of the best wings I have had in some time.

I kept the entire chicken wing in tact. If you want to split the wing and the drummie, feel free. I like the wing tip as well. Again, your call.

These wings are also baked. Baked until they are super crispy as that is how I personally love them.

Start by adding the chicken wings to a gallon sized ziplock bag. Add in the al pastor seasoning and seal the bag. Toss the chicken around in the bag ensuring that all of the wings get a nice coating. Place these in the refrigerator for at least four hours, but preferably over night.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the chicken wings onto the parchment paper and place in the preheated oven for roughly 60 minutes. After 60 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven, turn the chicken wings, and cook for another 30 minutes. Just keep an eye on the wings before 60 minutes as you do not want them to burn, however you want that skin to caramelize and get nice and crisp.

When the wings are done, remove them from the oven and place them onto a serving dish. Shower the wings with the fresh cilantro, and drizzle a bit of the Mexican crema over the wings.

Al Pastor Chicken Wings

Dig in. These wings were awesome. They were crispy with just the perfect sweet heat you would expect in some great al pastor. My son also loved them. I left him a big bowl of them on the counter and when he returned home from playing took a bit of caution as they were not the good ‘ol plain type, but after first bite he devoured the entire bowl.

So if you can find al pastor seasoning at your store, pick some up and try them on some wings. I hope you enjoy.
